Dota 2 is currently (again) the most played steam game with around 1 mil peak players. At its height it had 1.3 mil. Dota is not dying.
DotA 2 is actually rebounding still. It was down as low as 450,000 players a few months back. It really hit a rut around the time PUBG was getting big, and is just starting to get back to where it was recently.

apex legends has 50 million players... and its EA... not a huge fanbase like steam. ---- so dying is a relative term when you look at numbers.
I mean, EA has a pretty big fanbase. Origin may not have had as many users as Steam, but it's not like EA is a relative unknown--they're one of the largest names in the Gaming industry. It's important to note, by "50 million players", I believe they mean they have evidence 50 million people have tried the game. I would say it's entirely likely at least that many have tried DotA, but what is important is regular users and player retention. League of Legends liked to tout their "unique account" number as their player count, but once it stopped increasing they stopped reporting it and now don't comment on player counts, and have no method of tracking player activity.

Those are unique players, not peak (concurrent). Dota 2 is now at 12 mil unique only during the last month (so active players).

PSA: you can get 1000 free Apex coins.

Send me a PM if you want the how-to! There is a content update on its way and these 1000 coins will get you it for free ;)

This is currently a bug in the game, so be quick.

Its awfully quiet here. All burned out already from this game? I'm not, that is for sure...

If you haven't yet, take note of my post above, though it may be patched out right about now.

Game has an update. New legend, start of Season 1. Downloading...

I might give it a shot in season 2 or 3. No gaming rig at the moment.

Burnt out of BR's moreso than this game. Apex is polished but it brings almost nothing new to the genre.

Also I'm sick of bullet sponge games.

Are you sure you're playing the same game...
What do you consider to be not polished about it? There are some occasional matchmaking / network issues but other than that... the scope of the game is limited but what's there does work fine right?
